Mission Statement

The Arc was founded in 1953 by parents with a common concern. The goals of the founding members continue to be reflected in our mission statement:


The Arc of Macomb County exists to ensure that people with disabilities are valued and that they and their families can participate fully in , and contribute to, the life of their communities. We are committed to securing, for all people with disabilities, the opportunities to choose and realize their goals and dreams regarding where and how they learn, live, play, and work.
